Consultation and Tasting
Consultations are by appointment only. The consultation is without charge and gives you the opportunity to taste a variety of cake flavours, view a selection of wedding cake examples and discuss the design of your wedding cake. Please get in touch to book an appointment.
You will receive a quote either online or by post detailing the design of your wedding cake/celebration cake and all the relevant design information. The price is based on the exact design and size of your cake. The quotation is valid for 30days from the date of the quotation. Paying the deposit will secure your cake at the price quoted.
To avoid disappointment it is suggested that you order your wedding cake 6-12 months before your wedding day. Particularly if being held during the summer months and holidays.
Payment and Deposit
A 25% deposit is required to confirm your order and hold the date for you. The deposit is non refundable and non transferable. dates can only be held once the deposit has been paid. The final payment is due 4 weeks before your wedding date. Payment for individual cakes or cake orders placed less than 6 weeks before the event require payment to be made in full. Celebration cakes also require a 25% deposit but the final payment can be made on collection (same day transfer or cash) payment can be made by cheque 9deposit only) or through online banking. Please contact us for bank details.
Deposits are non refundable and non transferable.
As your wedding cake booking is reserved solely for you and certain components for your cake may be ordered months in advance. the following conditions therefore apply when an order is cancelled. Full payment of the cake balance is due if cancellation is within 1 month of the wedding date. 50% of the cake balance is due if cancellation is within 1-3 months of the wedding date. Cancellations must be submitted in writing. If you postpone the event we will endeavour to transfer your order to your new date., depending on availability.

Some cake stands are available to hire. Price is £10.00 per stand plus a security deposit to cover the cost of the stand. (Deposit will vary depending on the price of the stand) The security deposit will be refunded once the stand has been returned undamaged. The stand must be returned 3 days after the wedding.
Allergies and Special Dietary Requirements
Gluten free cakes are available and work particularly well with the chocolate mud cakes. Jill uses her own gluten free mix which comprises of rice , potato and tapioca flour. Whilst our sponge cakes are nut free we cannot guarantee a nut, gluten free environment. Dairy free cakes are also available in our naked and semi naked wedding cake collection.
Best Before and Storage Conditions
All cakes should be kept in a cool, dry environment, but not refrigerated if iced. Your cake is baked fresh for your event. It is made from the very best of ingredients and does not contain any presarvatives as commercial cakes can. Our sponge cakes are therefore designed to be eaten on the day or within 48 hours of the event. Fruit cakes will last for several months and will improve as they age and should be kept wrapped or in a tin. To extend the shelf life of your sponge cake after the event you can freeze it for up to 3 months. Please note that the icing will become sticky when defrosted.
Our celebration cakes are covered in fondant sugar pasteicing and have a thin layer of buttercream underneath.
Our fondant covered wedding cakes have a thin layer of chocolate ganache or marzipan underneath the fondant. This provides the foundation for a smooth finish. The chocolate ganache can be made from white or milk chocolate.
